Why Greg and Marietta Egan chose Kelowna
We saw the potential immediately for a hobby farm, and healthy country living. And, truly we wanted to bless others with this beautiful atmosphere . Our property includes artesian well water, mountains, trails and 2 creeks plus every species of trees imaginable. You can hike, cross country ski, snowmobile, snowshoe, swim, ATV, or play hockey or roller blade on our very own skating rink and we recently added a "pickleball" court complete with a smooth concrete base and night lighting. Wild Play Zipline Park is 5 minutes drive from our resort and you are only 25 minutes to Big White Ski Resort. Log home living is unique and adds to our attraction. You will enjoy the serenity, privacy and peacefulness being a short distance from the big city. From the hot tub the stars at night are spectacular.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Our location is a huge benefit being close to all kinds of activities and amenities. We are 25 minutes drive to the International Airport, Big White ski resort and Okanagan Lake. Between these places are fruit orchards, golf courses, wineries, zipline parks, shopping and the famous Kettle Valley Rail trail.

The Hitching Post is a great place to stay if you want to do things in Kelowna and Big White. There are lots of privacy there and the property as well as the house is beautiful. Greg and Marietta were very friendly and accommodating. The house easily hosts 6 people and is nice and warm. The beds were comfortable. The hot tub worked great and was required after a day of boarding. Internet worked without a problem. The bathroom and shower were well stocked. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook a meal and a bbq grill was available outside. Both worked great. Literally between the city and the mountain. If you like a place with lots of open spaces and a nice rustic yet comfortable feel, this is the place for you.
Dan n Alto , you guys were easy keepers and thank you for leaving the Wood Loft Lodge immaculate when you left . Sorry we missed your departure - sure hope we
will meet again in the future . Pickleball court is clear of snow and with some sunshine we will be ready to play by the first of April . All the very best .
Sincerely , Greg and Marietta @ the Hitching Post in Kelowna BC
